Menu Button on Graphs and Charts

Recommended Posts

Here's an interesting UI trick, as an example of what one can do with "filter" events:

 

Problem: I like right-click menus to add lots of options to graphs, but the Users seldom discover the right-click options.   I would like an obvious menu button for the User to see, but have any click on the button open the graph menu.

 

Solution: put the button on the graph.  On "Mouse Down?", hide the button and make the mouse click a right click.  The Mouse Down then falls on the graph and triggers "Shortcut Menu Activation?", where I make the button visible again (the User never notices it being hidden).
